You can’t tell me that Charles Grodin and Miss Piggy didn’t have a torrid behind the scenes love affair while filming this, I simply will not be convinced otherwise.
The Muppet Movie has better songs, cameos and more raw sincerity than this, but the jokes here are unbeatable. There are a lot of perfect one liners but I was absolutely howling at the sight of 30 Muppets wearing Groucho glasses.
Also this is a technical masterpiece??? I feel like Henson was just making Muppets do things they shouldn’t have been able to do? The bike ride, climbing up walls, swimming, big group scenes, just incredible stuff I didn’t appreciate until this viewing. The man simply did not have to go this hard.
I love this movie very much.
